I contacted Walmart headquarters & asked for a gluten-free section
in my store in New Orleans. They immediately put in extensive
gluten-free foods section.. Ask and ye shall receive. I emailed
my gratitude and thanks to a great corporation.

Mary, thank you for taking the time to leave a message on my guestbook page. Yes, I will be bringing books to the MAGIC meeting. I will also be giving a presentation to those that come. I hope to see and meet lots of MAGIC members. Talking with others regarding challenges we face and advice is my greatest passion. I look forward to meeting you as well Mary.

If we GF folks can eat directly out of the garden, as did our kin before us, we are fine and following a GF diet! Rice and corn tortillas work well with the 'garden fresh' diet! My daughter, son and I are GF and learning how to adapt. It IS a steep learning curve! The internet has many GF recipes on recipe sites.

For GF folks who have already been avoiding wheat, rye, and barley, the only test that is accurate is an endoscopy. Blood tests don't give accurate information unless the tested person has been eating wheat, rye, and/or barley regularly, as blood tests are testing for antibodies.

If you have one test and the doctor says you are not GF, but you have symptoms, experts say test every 2 years.

The Mayo Clinics (3) and the Celiac Institute in Chicago have exceptional expertise in diagnosis and guidance, but are there others?

Although I am from Iowa, I have been in Kentucky with my GF dd, as she is in college and we are learning to eat GF together. I'll try to hear you in Atlanta, but have ordered 3 books for us. Thanks, Sandy

Dear Roy I can sympathys with you I to was diagniosed celiac speu back in 1996. Its the pitts. I have also IBS with it. I bloating bad but that goesw/ the disease. I use Betty Hagmans living gluten free books and I use rice flour, potatostarch flour and tapioca flour to make 1 flour. When I need a c. flour I just use that. I still use my same recipes but I use the glutenfree flour.2c. rice, 1/2c tapiocaflour,2/3 c. potatostarch flour.Roy if you &your wife come up w/ a good recipe for noodles that don't dissolve when put in broth would you let me know? I sure wuold appreciate it! You can go to enrgy foods and request recipes too. I did and they sent me alot of them. Roy good luck and enjoy some of Betty Hagmans recipes. I do!Go to the library and get books on gluten-free and copy them and look on the internet they have a site on there calleddigestive health smart belief [email protected] me at the address below and I will send you some recipes that I use. Darla Ullery 1651 St. Rt. 571 West Greenville, Ohio 45331. Keep up with all the info you can you'll do just fine! Yes you will gain wght. I read that in 1 of the articles that I read on the internet. Its true I have. I wght 85 # in 96 now I m 124 to 130 #. I feel so sluggish and tired alot the dr. says thats 2b expected. I take a B-100 daily . I got on them in 97 and learned alot about the cs from a girl who owns a health food shop.She has alot of health food problems and allergies to certain foods too. Yes its good to see that Im not the only one with cs. I've heard alot about this disease and Autism. Theres more diseases out their that people don't even know about nor does the drs. I also use Kame foods made with rice and Tinkinyada pastas elbow macaronie made with brown rice. Try it! Its not bad! I use the mac. in chili soup, mac&cheese, mac& spaghetti sauce. Roy thanks to you&your wife keep making the books and enjoy them and life . Do you have your book in the libraries yet? If not. What are you waiting for? The more your books out in the public the more people will buy it. You need to get on Good Morning America Show or anyother talk show. Every bit of publisity you get will help others too. Try It !WHAVE YOU GOT TO LOOSE ?

Good for you!!!! We who need GF appreciate all the help we can get and thankfully it is getting out there but if you're in a small town, its hard. You've done a great job for the challenge of going GF. I like the fact you address travel too, how about lots of simple snacks or meals you can do traveling with microwave or refrig in room. I travel a lot with my job and get very tired of restaurants and sometimes can get microwave/refrig in room so can fix my own -- I have some but run out of ideas quickly.

I have not read your book yet, but plan on purchasing it. I am 25 and was diagnosed with Celiac 3 years ago. Wow what a life changing experience.

Holly,
Thank you for taking the time to write in my guestbook. I agree that the GF lifestyle is a life changing experience. It gets easier everyday, but we continue to have daily challenges. I hope my book will offer new and exciting ideas for you, new food companies to enjoy and try and be of some guidance. I wish you the best of luck during this journey.

My Doctor saids that i donot have Celiac but the symtoms r the same as IBS all though i did look at an xray of my intenstine and didn't looked damaged maybe its damaged on the inside or something.
The thing is my husband and i can't afford to buy the items to make gluten free biscuits and stuff like that and i hate , hate, hate cooking. and too he dosen't want to go on the gluten free diet as he eats refried beans and lean ground beef and chicken

What a pleasure it is to read a guide written by someone who truly understands what it is like to find out a loved one has celiac disease! Your down-to-earth ideas, helpful websites, and ideas of places to purchase food items have been so helpful. Your book is a "must have" for everyone who has celiac disease!

Thank you so much for this wonderful book! The information you share about traveling was particularly helpful to me. I also loved the free samples, coupons, and discounts. They more than paid for the book I might add. Thanks so much for writing this well-organized, helpful guide.
